DEATH-WITH-DIGNITY FOR YOU... FEB 12TH,2014


DEATH-WITH-DIGNITY FOR YOU … FEB 12TH,2014
BY
JAMES BREDIN

Our politicians have turned their heads away again and again,
Their political party edicts say that there’s nothing to win,
The religious and politically correct, want to avoid this,
Therefore the elites think it is something like going down in an abyss.


Our appointed Supreme Court told Sue Rodriguez where to go,
And she could not die with dignity and she would have to kowtow,
It’s allowed in Switzerland but definitely not here,
And all death-with-dignity ideas will have to disappear.


Medically-assisted-dying could help when it comes time to die,
And we’re looking up at the ceiling or sky and we don’t know why,
This is in our future though some look away and try to deny,
Why is this so difficult to have legally applied?

    I regret that this is the truth. I studied this for my thesis and would love to at least see physician -assisted -suicide made legal in Ireland for terminal and degenerative cases. I believe Oregon has this law in place for people who were born in the state and who were only given 6 months or less to live. I also realize that you can only understand so much from a subjective point of view.The 'slippery slope' people drone on about will only get more slippy if no legislation exists to deal with these essential matters.

Oft I had heard of Lucy Gray:

The solitary child.
